Thus it suggests that the only use for the two targets is whether someone
is interested in having a smaller footprint version...

The other reason why I sticked to it in the submission is to be upward
compatible with the previous state with 2 differents targets. I feel it is
a "political" decision to shift to a single target install, and I'm not
the one to take such a decision... I'm only really interested in having
server headers and pgxs stuff installed by default, so that extensions can
be reliably added on a default installation.

So, the question remains the same: is there a consensus to drop
install-all-headers/light-install targets for a simple and full "install"?

If so, I'll make a new submission.
